Diamond Princess Cruise Review by ElaineSM

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2019
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Ship was dated, service was very poor, dining was average, take a large bank account with you because they will charge you like a wounded bull!! Don't trust what they tell you as we were told that to certain destinations by foot was not possible but it was, again another ploy to sell you their excursions which are grossly overpriced as are their drinks, note you will be paying a daily gratuity fee which is suppose to cover all gratuities but then you will find that they put an 18% gratuity fee on any drinks purchased in the bars, double dipping at it's best. Staterooms are very dated and not particularly clean, fresh towels not presented every day, old ones folded and hopefully you don't notice - yuk! Calls to room service ignored but then again they were overrun with calls as was the front desk. As one person said " you can't complain about the service - there isn't any" Correct!!

Would go on a Cruise again, yes but not with Princess NEVER!
